eSigner Demo Credentials and Certificates maintains a separate “sandbox” environment for our eSigner cloud signing service so that users can experiment with the different apps and utilities before working with production Document Signing and EV Code Signing certificates. This how-to includes demo credentials, QR codes, and configuration information to ease experimental use of the eSigner Express Sandbox, CodeSignTool, and DocSignTool.

Demo eSigner Credentials

Use these demo credentials when logging into the eSigner Express Sandbox, and testing the CodeSignTool and DocSignTool command-line utilities:

  • Username: esigner_demo
  • Password: esignerDemo#1

Demo QR Codes and TOTP Secrets

Scan the QR codes below into a two-factor authentication app like Authy or Google Authenticator to generate time-based one-time passwords (TOTPs) for use when testing eSigner. You can also use the TOTP Secrets below to automate signing with CodeSignTool and DocSignTool.

CodeSignTool and DocSignTool Configuration

To use the above demo credentials with the CodeSignTool and DocSignTool command-line utilities, they must be reconfigured to point to the eSigner test environment. To do so, replace the contents of conf/ or conf/ with the following text:

Note: By default, supports timestamps from ECDSA keys. If you encounter this error: The timestamp certificate does not meet a minimum public key length requirement, you should contact your software vendor to permit timestamps from ECDSA keys. If there is no way for your software vendor to allow for the normal endpoint to be used, you can use this legacy endpoint to get a timestamp from an RSA Timestamping Unit.
